TAA Trust Fund (Tabung Amal Aidilfitri Trust Fund), was founded in 1992 with a mission to help the poor, needy and less fortunate during the holy month of Ramadan (fasting month).
The idea was first mooted by the late Dr Tay Eng Soon, the then Senior Minister of State for Education, who had suggested that Malay/Muslim organisations could organise a public charity drive during the Ramadan / Syawal season as an annual affair.
In response to the call, Hj Sidek Saniff, the then Minister of State (Education) invited several Malay Muslim Organisations and formed what is known as Tabung Amal Aidilfitri or TAA. Hj Sidek became the first Chairman of the TAA Committee.
